It's finally here :) and I had a great plans for the family. First we were going to the free concert and the fireworks and we were going to make some yummy food and crafts. But then I saw the forecast and rain was predicted for the whole weekend. Groan...
So I decided I was going to make some memories and bond with my children by making chocolate dipped pretzel sticks. So I took out all the ingredients and none of my children were around....so I called out for Aaron and he finally comes over while still looking over the ledge and watching TV....ok, then.
So he dips a couple of the sticks in the chocolate then he says "Am I done?" And I said no you need to help me make the rest. So he makes a few more and he is finally looking like he's enjoying himself and I snap a pic:
because you know, he'll need to see this when he grows up ;)
and there she is--- OLD GLORY
Not as snazzy as the tutorial one, but she's mine :)
I will proudly hang it on my front porch as much as I can
Oh and those pom poms were inspired by Martha Stewart herself and I love the idea from centsational girl. And yes I did this all Friday night!! In a midnight frenzie that I couldn't even think anymore nor draw a straight line! But I had fun, dang it and that's what counts! Happy Birthday America! I'm glad we're here :)
